REST record limit of 50 has messed up my development - need a solution. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a situation - I have over 800 records of orders that I need to calculate the total figure in the Price field on a form. I know that with REST you can get the top 50 results. How do I get the other 750 records?

    I'm trying to get the sum of all 800 records.

  • You can find an example in SDK on how to return the rest of the data, but I think that a simple Web API controller is a better solution. You could calculate the sum with server side code, and call the controller with a couple of jquery lines.

    From SDK: If there are more than 50 records, there will be a <link rel="next" href="<url to next set of records>" > node in XML or a JSON __next property at the end of the result set. You can use the URL value in that node or property to continue with the next set of records. The URL contains a $skiptoken parameter that provides information about the paging boundary.

  • Yeah, that's exactly what I am trying to do - with json/jquery/REST. But I haven't found a solution to retrieve all records. I've looked at the SDK but can't find anything specific. Where do I go from here?

  • I meant that you can create a web site (MVC or Forms), host it on the same server as CRM, and include a Web API controller with one method. Ther you can do the calculation, and in javascript on CRM form, just call that controller with help of jquery. You can find a simple example of web api at http://www.asp.net, as well as calling it from jquery.

  • I'm using CRM Online; so both solutions are not possible. Surely there must be a way to do it online?

  • Something like this?

    function GetData(url) { if (url == null) { url = ServerURL + "/XRMServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc/AccountSet()"; } $.ajax({ dataType: "json", url: url, success: GetResults, error: function () { alert("Error Retrieving Data"); } }); } function GetResults(retrieveReq) { //process the 50 records here

    if (retrieveReq.d.__next != null) { GetData(retrieveReq.d.__next); } else { //finish up here } }
